Watch a Russian Curler Smack His Face On the Ice
We're going for the Olympics schadenfreude hat trick today, following posts earlier on the Swedish snowboarder who lost his pants and American figure skater Jeremy Abbott who took a mean spill. Yet we're not really laughing at them or Russian curler Andrey Drozdov, because they all get right up in true Olympic fashion.
As you can see in the GIF, Drozdov tripped over a stone that ricocheted and caught a face full of home ice. In true curling fashion, Drozdov displayed remarkable accuracy, hitting his head squarely on the bullseye.[NBC]
